So heres the setting, my buddy's house on the edge of the national forest, mid summer big camping trip, drum circle planned for later in the evening, in pre party preparation my buddy says "hey man open the lid on that cooler" WOW!!! Fresh liberty caps just beginning to open up..."go ahead man dig in!!!" Cool "I'll just take's still early" an hour later I'm thinking damn these things aren't that great..."yeah I got plenty, eat whatever you think you can handle". Thanks man, I'm gonna grab one of these bigger ones. It's about time to roll out to the woods, grab a hand full to pass out when we get there....COOL!!! So we get to the party GROOVY vibe things are great then BAM BOOM POW ZOOOMMMM!!!! To da moon ALICE!!!! At this point things become quite unpleasant skulls in the fire ,lights in the woods...what are those lights....lets go sit in the car maybe some music will help bring me around....pop in that new tape ,bust out some of Billy and Mickeys finest!!! Drums are cool gettin a good groove on then as if the cosmos had dealt me a crazy hand that second cap began to appear in the form of SERIOUS hallucinations, at the same time Jerry decided to break into MIND FUCK!!!!At this point things got WAY TOO WEIRD for my brain and I began to really lose all touch with reality ,how can things possibly sound THAT weird?!?!?! Is it really sounding like that or am I gonzo?!?!? Frank, does that sound all fucked up to you?!?!?" It's the dead man OF COURSE it sounds all fucked up!!!" From that point on I never could really dig on space too much TOO WEIRD!! I dig a good drum session but the space just trips me out too much. When they did it just right they could destroy my grip on reality and leave me floating around in some weird sound scape that was at times just not comfortable and when they didn't hit it just right it was boring. So for me it was a double edged sword.

when the huge spider with a skull for a head begins spinning you around and around in her web it's too late to ask,
"Is this really happening or...?"

Just let nature work it's wonders...
those fungi you ate had a little bitty garden spider under the cap, and she's on the journey with you, inside you and now you're about to be consumed by her.

Oh well... don't fear the reaper...

eeeeyaahhhhhh! is exactly what I said upon first hearing the 10/26/89 Star my one time on K. The pre-Drums jam out of that Star might as well be a Space, it makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. Delightful I tells ya!

yeah, I've streamed that one before.
thanks for the reminder... I'm listening to Dark Star etc. again now.

Some of the reviews were in the back of my mind when I went all 8-legged earlier...

If you want to take a journey into your psyche and see what associations lie in wait - fear not for the whole world is in this one Dark static, racquetball courts, time-machines, medieval torture, insect communication, funeral horns of new orleans, buddhist scripture, worldbeat, witches incantations, ice-ages, wars, raga, muzak, volcanoes, black holes, peruvian indigenous sounds, crawling, creeping, gliding, seething ends, beginnings, and tight rope walking over some huge abyss.

My third show.
I had to leave during space. I went to the bathroom to rinse my face in the sink and the water started crawling up the walls to the ceiling and back down to the floor. I knew a head who used to be a roadie for the dead and he pointed out Owsley to me - in crazy mask and with some mountain man type walking stick (he had on the 'owsley-dead-bronze' belt buckle that is infamous). There were quite a few costumes around it being near halloween.

Anyway this show was completely sick. This is what convinced me to tour as much as I could until I finally quit in Oct. '94. Download this now you wont regret it. I will never forget this show.
(PS - not confirmed but I beleive this is the 2000th dead show)[?]

I was at this show and it was extremely edgy. We watched many a pastel colored yuppie suck down frozen mixed drinks, oblivious to the seriousness of the first set. By the time Drums was hitting us, these poor folks were literally crawling up the aisles, covered in their own sick, trying to get out of the cauldron. A bizarre sight, but I am sure if had been partaking of anything psychoactive that night, I would have been right down there with them.

Gives new meaning to the phrase "killer show"!(unquote)

In 10-26-89 it seems like Dark Star through Space is one big song anyway...
